Life Goals by the Age of EIGHT !

Today we were planning to take our kids to see "Hotel for Dogs". Savannah was so excited and busting at the seams! She is a dog lover. She found out Friday that this movie was playing at the local theater and we have been unable to go until tonight. It has been a long week for her!!!

We have had a crazy week, so we had much to accomplish if we were going to get to the theater. Throughout the day I kept saying, "Savannah, you are really going to have to get your stuff done, if you want to go see the movie." So, Savannah says to me, "Momma, it is not that I WANT to see it. I NEED to see it, because that is what my life is going to be like one day!" Fortunately, she was looking down in deep thought and focusing on what she was doing... She did not see my mouth drop open or the perplexed look on my face. You see, I know she has this dream to be a veterinarian/dog rescuer and own a business with her buddy, Mariah. They are very serious about it and have many plans laid out in their heads. BUT to make such a statement like, "that is what my life is going to be like one day!".... pretty deep for an eight year old!!!

I must say I do not remember having such goals at that age... I am very proud of my girl !!!
